West Ham get Olympic Stadium after government ups funding
West Ham will be anchor tenants for the Olympic Stadium after the government agreed to put an extra £25m towards the costs of converting the venue.
The additional money takes the Treasury's contribution to around £60m.
Adapting the stadium could cost between £150m and £190m.
But the deal was secured only after West Ham agreed to increase their own funding of the project by £5m, to £15m. They will move in from August 2016 and pay around £2m a year rent.
